Who determines what jobs are on the TN visa list?

The jobs on the TN visa list are defined by the terms set out in NAFTA. While other visa categories may be periodically reviewed and updated due to changes in the labor market and employer demand, the TN visa is fixed in the terms of the treaty, and less likely to change. 

What are the differences between a TN and an H-1B visa?

For some professionals and their employers, “dual intent” may become an important factor. While a TN visa can be renewed every three years potentially indefinitely, it is specifically designated as a non-immigrant visa. TN visa holders must maintain a permanent residence in Canada or Mexico, and express the intent to return and live there. This means that TN visa holders may become disqualified to renew their visas if they eventually file for permanent residency in the U.S.
An H-1B visa, on the other hand, might be a better fit for persons who want to eventually seek permanent residency in the United States. The H-1B does allow for dual intent, which allows a visa holder to maintain nonimmigrant visa status while also seeking permanent resident status in the U.S.
